Hello everyone! I have some really top-notch products from Trinity Stamps that I'm focusing my design team project on today for the Not 2 Shabby Shop! This is my first time designing with Trinity Stamps products, but it's certainly not going to be my last. The products that really grabbed my attention are their 3x4 stamp sentiments and the coordinating Slimline Fold & Frame Dies.
Ninety percent of the time I prefer to create A2 sized cards (4 1/4 x 5 1/2); however, the cards I created using these products are mini cards (3x4), and I absolutely adore them! Trinity released 5 of these sentiment stamps which you can use to create mini cards, or regular A2 size cards. The sentiments and the fonts are just lovely!
The Slimline Fold & Frame Dies were really fun to use with these stamps because they cut out a perfect sized card base to fit these stamps--it even scores a line in the middle for easy folding. If you're planning on picking up any of these fabulous products, be sure to use the 10% off coupon code: N2S10. Links to the products are listed below!
Card #1: Chalkboard Hug Card
This stamp is my favorite of the set. I stamped out the sentiment onto a piece of black card stock using white pigment ink. I then colored in the sentiment with some polychromos colored pencils. To make the sentiment really pop off the paper, I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. You really don't have to put a lot of time and effort into these cards to make them fabulous. Trinity Stamps has done most of the work for you.
Card #2: Dimensional Hug Card
I couldn't get enough of this stamp, so I created another card with it. This time I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of kraft card stock. I used the coordinating Sending Monster Hugs die to die cut out the word hug with different colors of card stock. I colored in the leaves, hearts, and other part of the sentiment with polychromos pencils and then adhered the hug die cuts onto my card front with foam tape.
Card #3: Hug Window Card
On this card I die cut the word hug with the coordinating dies and placed a piece of pattern paper behind it. I used foam tape to pop up my main panel to create a window behind the hug sentiment. I also heat embossed the sentiment with more white embossing powder.
Card #4: Ink Blended Love Card
I heat embossed this sentiment with some clear embossing powder onto a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock. This card stock is great for ink blending because it has a smooth coating on it. To make the sentiment really pop, I added more colored pencils over the hearts and the love word.
Card #5: Copic Markers Better World Card
I love the graphics on this sentiment stamp! I had fun coloring it in with Copic markers onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink card stock. I'm loving this paper so far! I added some white Gelly Roll pen to create some highlights--they really helped the card pop!
I also created some mini envelopes for these cards using my We R Memory Keepers Punch Board. They are so fun and easy to make! Mailing out little encouragement cards like these would create a whole lot of happy in this world!

Have a happy day, everyone!!
